90 Years of Citroën - the Traction Avant


Don't know about you, but my favourites are the black ones - reminiscent of so many old French films.

Note the waiters and guests on the terrace of Alain Ducasse's 3-star Louis XV in the Hôtel de Paris - they are enjoying the parade as much as we are.

The Traction Avant was introduced 75 years ago and was the world's first front-wheel drive car. If you'd like to read more about Citroën's 90 years of history, do please click on the link to read my article for CITYOUT Côte d'Azur.

My favorite too, so far. So much more beautiful than the Playstation car.

There is a certain otherworldly elegance about these beautiful automobiles!

Amusing how the owner of the first car has used an old horseshoe to make the 'C'.
I agree, black looks best.

Those cars! Those Monaco flags! Those palm trees!

These vintage autos are far more appealing than the new models! Gorgeous!!

And my favourite is the white Traction Avant in Diva. Super-cool, Super-Jules. Anyone else?
